xp drivers or older specific drivers

#1
should we use Windows XP's newer drivers for hardware, or go back (6 months being the farthest for me personally) and get the specific hardware driver from the manufacturers website??

my exact situation is my Sony CD-RW CRX100E has drivers signed by Windows XP (7/1/01), but then there are drivers from (3/02/00) the original manufacturer, which do i choose? and what should i do about my other hardware drivers? should i just let XP run the way it wants?

I would stay with XP's drivers, especially since in this case they appear to be newer. People get a little driver happy sometimes. Is everything working right? Many times newer driver versions are fixes for things that may not apply to your system. But in this case let XP do it's thing.
